Wishes

Sometimes I wish everything would add up.
I hate the fact that so much about the world doesn't add up.
You know something isn't the truth--something isn't right, but you don't know where to look.
I wish people didn't have such a hard time giving.
I wish every problem was as easily solved as math.
I don't understand why people tell lies without realizing it. Is it so hard to wonder now and then what your real answer is? What is your ulterior motive? What are your subconcious reasons?
Is there any reason why things can't be as simple as they seem?
Why do we have to feel so alone in our thoughts?
Is there such thing as thinking too much? All that matters is where your thoughts are headed.

It's strange how, no matter how complicated one's thoughts are, they always lead to a thirst for simplicity.

And that simplicity is a long ways away. A long way to walk alone.

And for the rest, c'est la vie. You gotta take it with a sense of humor.

"I wish every problem was as easily solved as math.".... math is not always easy Flo. God is the only constant, everything else is a veriable.

why do you post things like this when you already know the answer? i mean this is sumthing that a real searching person would ask..you were born and raised in the family..all the answers are right at your fingertips..so whats with all these really "profound" questions huh?

PC, there are no answers to most of those questions.
If there are, they're subjective...or not the answers anyone wants.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining or wallowing in self-pity.
Just thinking.
Photo from DA, florecita. Course it would look familiar to you, you regular browser, you.
Hahahaha, moff...I was going to put something in there about hating Math, but I decided not to.
But hey, my point is that at least there's an answer to everything. At least the answer lies within the equation. You don't finish adding everything up and realize you still don't have the answer.

Too true.
Thank God we don't have to walk alone.

By the by, Flo, not sure about the particulars of DA copyrights
(Dan's gone so you can skip the lecture)
but I think you need to give some sort of credit to the artist/photographer, at least in fine print somewhere...
Anyone know?

A couple thots that struck a familiar chord w/ me:

"You know something isn't the truth--something isn't right, but you don't know where to look."

...until I remember to look UP. Thanks to the Word, both written & Living!!

"Is there such a thing as thinking too much? All that matters is where your thoughts are headed."

I agree. I know when *I* don't direct my thots upward, & ask Jesus about them, especially ones I can't see answers to, I get just like that little poem we used to get so foolish about as OCs:

When u think, think, think,
Then u sink, sink, sink,
'Cuz u stink, stink, stink!

If it wasn't for the Lord, we'd all be sunk! It's a relief to know He's got all the answers, & to trust Him to give us the ones we personally need, when we most need it.

Ok, first of all, the "lord" is not the answer to everything. Every single of you will agree with that "outrageous" statement one day.

Obviously, Flo knows that, or she wouldn't have written this blog. One day she'll admit that she knew it all along. So all of you "dear friends" who remind her of the "lord" in your comments, take your que from Flo and have an original thought.

Flo, I found this particular blog espcecially evocative. You are right to see the inconsistancies--it proves you're a thinker--a leader in thought--and not a follower of someone elses musings. IMHO, followers just take up space, and precious natural resources. They should all be lined up and shot!

Just kidding. Obviously, if all the followers were shot, the thinkers would be shit-out-of-luck with no one to follow them.

As for those nagging problems where 2 and 2 is not making 4, one of two thing will eventually happen to resolve them: you will find the answer, or you will find that it's not the answer that matters, but the question.

Consider for a moment: it is the problem that builds character and experience, not the answer. One you find the answer, you learn no more from the problem. The most important thing about the answer is that it drives us to stick with the problem in hopes of finding it.

So if you in fact believe that the "lord" is the answer to everything, you should nip that brain in the bud right now. Get a labotomy and put yourself out of your mysery. You already know the answer to all the problems to come, so what on earth do you need that grey matter for anyway? It'll just confuse you further.
